How is that being received by your colleagues? I know you're pro education, but how is everyone else dealing with it.

They seem to be taking it very well. I lucked out and got a great group of instructors and some great providers sitting in the class with me.
First topic this morning was fighting the old statement of 'ems doesn't diagnose'. Plus there's a lot of talk about coming away from the technician titles and becoming true clinicians and professionals

Directionless eh?

Hmmm, well this morning I paired my Orange Pastel Leopard to my Sharp Sunglow, and my Pastel Dream Hypo Motley 66%het Anery to my Pastel Dream Hypo DH Ghost. These are boa constrictors.... I breed snakes.

I also cleaned my Green Anacondas enclosure and grabbed some pictures of her.

Have been keeping reptiles and snakes for 19 years.

I talked to the father of the kid who passed out yesterday. Apparently, the boy's BP was around 239!! O_O He's a slender, otherwise healthy, active 14 y/o boy. **wonders now where that hypertension could have come from** Anyways, the kid is doing much better and was back in church today.

Yesterday I took my boys to see Santa and get their pictures taken. One of the local animal hospitals was having pet photos with Santa to help raise money for a local family in need.

Santa didn't even blink when I took the 4 rats out of the carrier.



Left to right is Yoda, Jojo, Tigger, and Loki.

Did you notice Santa was wearing combat boots?

Lol the ER wanted me to intubate my drunk patient the other night that was breathing just fine on his own, with a GCS of 3. I'm like uh nope haha

He was intubated in the ER with a BAC of .573

Uh....so, you didn't tube your pt with a GCS of 3? Why not?

Breathing fine doesn't mean good airway maintenance...in a matter of seconds you can loose it.


Or am I missing something here?

I don't have RSI, we were 3 minutes away. His airway was perfect, no snoring respirations, and satting at 100%. He was just drunk.

.573 is beyond drunk. I'm not even sure how it's possible to drink that much.

Yea. He was extubated and discharged the next day. I just ran in and asked the doc. She said they intubated him, because they didn't have anyone to watch him. And he was fighting the tube so they put him on a propofol drip.

Awesome. What group is teaching this refresher? Is it through a particular organization?

It's about 29 degrees where I'm at. We also have snow in the mountains, none on the valley floor. It's just too cold for some here, but I'm ok with it. We're going to have night-time sub-freezing temps for quite a while. At least daytime temps will be somewhat OK. :p
